Students may specialize in one of five focus areas:
- Process Engineering
- Environmental Chemistry
- Subsurface and Surface Processes
- Sustainable Systems & Environmental Asssesment
- Nuclear Environmental Engineering and Science.
Course work for the Master of Science (MS) degree program in environmental engineering and science (EES) can be completed in three semesters (about sixteen months). An oral defense is required for the thesis (MS) . A non-thesis MS option can be completed in one calendar year by taking courses during both regular semesters and in the summer. Three courses required of all master’s students cover fundamental physical, chemical, and biological principles of natural and engineered environmental systems. . Remaining course work to meet career-specialization goals is not restricted to EES courses. Students may pursue a specialty in process engineering, subsurface and surface processes, environmental chemistry, sustainable systems, and hazardous and radioactive waste management (including risk assessment, environmental health physics, or radiochemistry).
